On my "nice" road bike I have a Record 8-speed rear hub, which buzzes like mad when I coast. I haven't really tried newer Campagnolo, but I understand this is how it sounds - true? I have recently begun commuting on an old road bike with Shimano 600/Ultegra and it is just so nice the way it is almost completely silent.
I'm about to move to Campagnolo 10-speed, primarily for new ergo levers, and I'm considering getting a Dura-Ace 7700 rear hub and re-space the cassette to get a quiet hub. When I researced this, I found that some people say their Campagnolo hubs are almost silent and that it might just be a question of how you lube them.
So is this true? Can any Campagnolo rear hub be silenced by lubing it a particular way - More grease, thicker grease, thinner grease, oil, butter?
